Fantasy Baseball is the idea that the Yankees actually think they can win this year....

I would be happy to shed some light.

Fantasy baseball is a game where several people each have their own team of major league players. These players are obtained through a draft where each owner takes turns picking a player until their rosters are full. (If you can't make the live draft you can just rank your players and allow the computer to pick for you.) There are the traditional position players, as well as pitchers and bench players.

Once a team is drafted, that team earns points based on how its players preform. The points come from typical baseball categories such as runs, average, home runs, steals, wins, saves, strikeouts, etc.

As an owner you manage your roster throughout the season by being able to trade among managers, add and drop players based on who is hot and who is not, or injuries.

The owner with the most points wins. Hope that helps. Feel free to ask any questions that you may have.

I'd just like to add it is a hell of a lot of fun and addicting in a good way.

In short fantasy sports are where you draft your own teams based on players in real life. Then your team's points are based on the player's statistics in actual games. At least that's how it works in fantasy football, never played fantasy baseball.
